Loren Brichter appeared on the One More Thing podcast — a companion to the upcoming conference held in Australia — and briefly discussed the pull-to-refresh patent that is now in Twitter’s hands. Brichter says that it’s true that Twitter owns the patent, but he “wouldn’t worry about it.” Given the prevalence of the gesture, I’d say that Brichter’s on the right track, but it’s nice to hear it straight from the lion’s mouth.
